The North West Department of Developmental Local Government and Housing has launched a housing project worth R200 million for the working poor in Mafikeng.
The North West government will provide a R48 000 subsidy, called the Finance Linked Subsidy Programme, for those who want to purchase a house from the development. Only those making between R3 500 and R7 000 will qualify for the subsidy.
"The developer takes the full risk of the development from application for township establishment, design and monitoring of construction process", says department spokesperson, Lesiba Kgwele.
